Obviously, you don’t want it to be to hot or cold when you get your window tinting done. Heat can cause air bubbles when your installing the film. If it’s too cold, it will take longer to cure the film to the window. Summer and Winter are not good times to get a window tinting done. In winter, you may not even be able get any tinting done because it’s simply too cold. If you go to a shop that doesn’t have an interior facility these problems are compounded. Does this mean it’s impossible to get window tinting done during these seasons? No. If you go somewhere that has a climate controlled facility many of these problems can be alleviated. But these are factors that need to be considered if you can’t wait to have your window’s tinted. And obviously, if your getting the windows of a commercial or residential home tinted you’ll want to wait for the ideal time to ensure the window tinting goes down properly.

Since Winter and Summer are bad seasons to tint, fall and spring are the best seasons to tint. The combination of moderate temperatures and low humidity means the film will have the easiest time bonding to you windshield or window. In some places, the rainy spring season and hotter fall seasons can still cause problems but in general these are the best times to tint and shouldn’t cause any problems if installed on a mild day.

Window Tinting as a safety measure?

Window Tinting can help cool your home but could it also protect you in other ways?

Well, in a way, yes. Window tints and film mostly help protect you by strengthening the glass panes and reducing the chances of shattering. Window tinting and films are applied by stretching it over the windows themselves. This lets professionals install window tints and films without having to remove or replace glass panes but it also has the secondary benefit of giving the window another layer of strength.  In addition, the film also helps protect against shattering by acting as a net to catch the shards. The glass may crack, but it’s far less likely to shatter and send glass shards at you and your family.

Additional Privacy

A vehicle with tinted windows is harder to look into, some people like the privacy that gives them as well as how it hides any valuables they keep in there car. The same idea goes for window tinting in your home. If a thief can’t see into your home, they’ll be less likely to break in. Additionally, because the window tinting will strengthen your windows it’ll be that much harder for a thief to break in.

Extra protection from storms

Raging storms are a scary thought. Storms like to throw debris around. During one of these storms the risk of shattering windows is high. Window tinting provides additional protection by not only strengthening your homes windows but by also preventing shattering. The window tinting can catch the cracked glass and keep it from spilling into your home with the rain and wind. Storms are scary enough, don’t add the extra stress of worrying about shattered glass in your home.

Window tinting and film are a solid investment in more ways than just saving energy. Give Formula One by AES a call today at 405-513-6400!

How Window film protects furniture

Nice furniture and floors are expensive. Here’s how window film can help protect this investment.

The main source of damage that the sun causes is fading and darkening of wood. We’ll get into how window film helps protect your interiors but first, how does the sun affect your interiors? Hardwood floors and furniture can change shade over time with unprotected exposure to the sun. While some woods can still look good after this fading or darkening, this is only if the affect is uniform across the whole floor. Since most floors have parts covered with rugs and furniture, your unlikely to get universal coverage and you’ll be left with ugly, uneven patches on your floor. UV rays are the primary culprit when it comes to altering furniture. These rays are invisible to the naked eye but over time, it can cause furniture to fade, floors to darken, artwork to degrade, and generally wreak havoc on your interiors. The other kind of ray that can accelerate this kind of damage are infrared rays. Infrared rays are the main type of heating ray, heating up the interiors of your home and accelerating the damage caused by UV rays. One more thing to note, these are the same rays that can affect your skin as well. Just because your indoors does not mean you are safe from these potentially damaging rays.

Here’s how Window Film protects your home and you

High quality window film, like the ones sold by Formula One By AES, work by reflecting the suns UV and IR rays. High quality window film can block out up to 99.99% of UV rays, protecting your furniture and you in the process, and up to 85% of IR rays. In addition to protecting you and your furniture, window film will also lower your energy costs by reducing the amount of heat that enters your home from the suns rays.

National Gallery Of Art- Window Film

A Case Study: National Gallery Of Art’s Neutral Window Film

Llumar N-1050 Neutral Window Film

Since there are so many different types of window film these days it took some pondering to determine the best solution for a building as prestigious as the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. It didn’t take long before the answer came to them and their project managers.

Over the years the many paintings, sculptures, and graphic arts have become too exposed to damaging UV sunlight. The National Gallery of Art was built by 1937 and today there are over 100,000 art pieces inside worth keeping protected. Of course, the goal for any museum is to protect the treasures and keep them vibrant for as many people to enjoy as possible.

That’s precisely why the museum’s management agreed to have 10,000 square feet of Llumar N-1050 Neutral Window Film applied on the exterior windows. Now, thanks to the addition of that film the nation’s art is 99% safe from harmful UV rays. Since ultraviolet rays are one of the main reasons for fading floor coverings, interior furnishings, and artwork this transformation meant a lot!

As an additional bonus, the film also rejects 42% of all solar energy. This means that the energy costs for the museum have also decreased. How awesome is the idea os saving money?

We can cover any window in just about any window film we have access to! Do you have a home, office, or special building that you’d like to preserve with the help of window film? FormulaOne by AES is local, we professionally install Llumar window film, and we offer a lifetime transferable manufacturer’s warranty, too!

Luckily, companies like EnerLogic have come up with a practical window film solution. We’ve discussed this awesome window film in previous articles, but it is so worth mentioning, again!

In the winter time this window film helps contain the heat from the building preventing the need to overwork the heater. With just windows blinds or curtains you miss out on the ability to still have natural sunlight enter the home. Additionally with other window treatments, you still have to worry about a harsh glare of the sun and UV rays.

The Benefits Of Using Enerlogic Window Film

How Enerlogic Can Benefit Your Home

There are many ways that you can save yourself money when it comes to home upgrades. Most people immediately think of CFL light bulbs, adding insulation, and weather stripping, but not many people think of Enerlogic (but they should). Enerlogic window film will essentially give a single pane window the insulating properties of a double pane window. This also carries over making a double pane window insulate as if it were a triple pane window. As an added bonus, the performance isn’t just for keeping the heat out during the hottest months, because it works all year round!

Tinting your home windows is the smartest way to save:

Tinting windows with the Enerlogic film will turn an ordinary home’s windows into thermal and energy efficient windows. The Enerlogic film filters out glare, excess heat, and Ultraviolet Radiation. We believe that homeowners utilizing this film will see a reduction in their energy consumption at a fraction of the cost that it would take to completely replace the windows. FormulaOne by AES also offers a lifetime transferable warranty, so you’re not just saving money, but you’re also adding value to your home.

Real results make for real savings: Our projected energy savings, listed below, was calculated by using the RESFEN program with homes that have clear single pane windows.

Over the course of the product’s life, homeowners with Enerlogic window film on single pane windows can save an average of $3,500 for their heating and cooling costs. The return on investment is fantastic, but adding value to your home is a great investment and it comes in at a fraction of the cost that you would expect to pay for completely replacing your windows with an extra pane of glass.
